    This isn't an F1 but a budget formula running a tuned reliant engine, it's good fun and very close racing

    Our effort 1967 ish, state of the art then if a little lacking in safety and sophistication, bed type angle iron roll cage, you can just see the bolted join at the bottom of the rh front upright, but we were super cool back then...Managed to get to red top in the end!
